I love hearing the news that more and more local businesses are starting to open up.

Just last week Xina has opened their doors once again for take-out. They are open daily from 12 p.m to 8 p.m

Margarita's on Rt. 37 in Toms River will re-open tomorrow (5/14) for take-out. Their hours will be 3 p.m- 8 p.m

Chef Mike ABG opens this Friday (5/15) for take-out. His original plan was to have tables on the beach eight feet apart from each, but the township told him that he can't do that. Kind of a bummer, but it is what it is. He will post the new menu on his Facebook page tomorrow (5/14). Moving forward, Chef Mike ABG will be open Wednesday-Sunday 11 a.m- 7 p.m

And now...A couple of markets have also announced their reopening:

Jerry's Farm Market on Rt. 35 in Ortley Beach announced they are back! They will be opening this Friday, May 15th

Big Ed's Produce in Lavallette opens tomorrow (5/14) at 2 p.m. This will be their 40th year in business!

And finally...Governor Murphy announced earlier today that non-essential construction can resume again on Monday (5/18) at 6 a.m
